"HARD TIMES."
People in this colony think that it is the
only country on the Pacific coast where hard
tiroes are experienced. It will be seen by a
perusal of the following correspondence, taken
from the San Francisco Examiner, that the
inhabitants of the neighboring Territories are
complaining of the extremely dull times anr1
scarcity of money which prevail amongst them
at the present time :
" When I was in San Francisco, I heard men
declaiming about the hard time?. I heard
thern saying one to another, 'go to, now, let
us get up and get out of this place. Let us
travel. Let ui go where everything is lovely
and money is plenty.' But there was a difference of opinion with regard to .the precise
locality of that place. Some said "lo! here,"
arid others "Io! there," and where to find it
was the question.
" When I went from San Franciseo to Portland, it was like jumping from the frying-pan
into the fire.   There was a ilinn.il wail all the
time, from the business quarters of the town
of Portland.     I  heard  shopkeepers  talking
about pulling up stakes and going up to Idaho,
where  times   were   good.     At  Dalles City
everything looked like the butt end of hard
timei.   There was no money, and no nothing
there, and the condition of business was distressing.    At Umatilla, the next town  which
I visited, the people had on their long faces.
When I asked them about trade, they shook
their head* and told me that trade was languishing, and that they believed that Umatilla
was  about  played  out.     I went to Wallula
and  Lcniston   only  to find  that money was
scarce  and  seldom  seen.     At Walla Walla
there   was  an   unwonted  stillness  upon the
streets.    She had been emptying herself into
thc Blackfoot country.    I asked  the keepers
of the  hotels,   and restaurants, and saloon?,
what had become of their customers?    They
pointed to the sign board at the upper end of
the  street,   that  tells the way to Blackfoot.
The business man had sent his partner, and
the merchant his clerk to the Blackfoot country.    From Walla Walla I took my departure
for Boise City.    I found the journey an easier
Idaho Territory.
"The Secretary has gone to parts unknown,
and with him $60,000 appropriated by Congress. The Territory is now head over heels
In debt, and Boise county more so. All the
public officers, both Democratic and Republican, steal all they can get a hold of, and the
people say 'd— n tho difference! Wc are
here to-day and there to-morrow, and the Assessor can't find more than every tenth man
of us, and the Collector cannot catch us, and
we won't vote for any man who is not smart
enough to help himself to the public funds,
when he can have an opportunity.' Doubtful
things. I am told, are very uncertain, and
Idaho Territory is among the doubtful things.
Tell Mr. Lungley, in his new Pacific Coast
Directory, to put down the business men of
Idaho Territory as laying around loose somewhere in the upper country. They are like
the negro's pig, which frisked about so much
he couldn't count him.   And such is life."

Sir Moktox Pito.—This English merchant,
who traveled some time since in the United
States, has published a book in which he
speaks very favorably of the energy of Americans and the resources of the country. He
says:
"In my travel through the United States
in the autumn of last year, the abundant resources of the country was the feature which
itruck me most forcibly. It appeared the
key to everything else. I saw wild territories,
both of forest and prairie, being cleared and
populated; I saw villages springing into
towns, and towns into cities, with a rapidity
so marvelous, that one's first idea was to attribute it all to the work of some powerful
magician; I passed through whole regions
where every description of grain seemed to
spring up spontaneously; I went over lines
of railway seemingly constructed for the express purpose of conveying this produce to
ports from which it could be shipped to countries where there was a superabundant population to consume it; I passed down immense
rivers, swarming with steamboats and other
vessels, filled with produce ; I was brought
into communication with the merchants who
conducted the varied commerce to which all

waiting the restoration of continuity in the current of his thoughts. There was a general
manifestation of surprise and sympathy
throughout the house highly creditable to the
generous and gentlemanly character of that
great assembly. Twice again the unaccustomed
lips of the Phillosopher suddenly ceased to
move, and again the same forbearance and
good feeling showed themselves. His speech
was, no doubt, like that of Sir Bulwer Lytton,
committed to memory; and in neither case

of the effort to repeat sentence by sentence of

YALE, MONDAY, JULY 80, 180(1.
TUE BRITISH MINISTRY.
It would appear, from a reference to the
''Derby Ministry" that appears in the telegraphic news, that Lord Derbr has been installed first minister of the Crown in England.
It therefore follows that a Conservative Government has taken the place of the effete
Whigs, who so long have held ofiice. We
hope  that Sir Bulwer Lytton, who was the
sand dollars on a great public work, he just
knows as. much about the " value received"
an if he had remained nil the time in England!
We ask, in' all seriousness, with the most
kindly personal feeling to Mr. Trutch, is he
not ashamed of thc part he has played in this
infamous and criminal neglect of public duty?
Cocnty Court Costs.—We havo heard
some complaints during the past week, in relation to the heavy costs allowed in thc
County Court of this district against suitors.

OFFICIAL   VISIT   OF   HER   MAJESTY'S
REPRESENTATIVE TO YALE.
The Honorable Arthur N. Birch, Administrator of the Government of this colony, arrived in Yule on Saturday morning last, by the
steamer Onward, Capt. Irving. The town presented a gay and animated appearance on ihe
occasion, the inhabitant* having hoi-ted all
the flags that could be collected. Immediately
on the steamer conveying his honor making
her nppearance, the booming of canon and
anv la commenced, and was kept up until al'ti r
Mr. Birch had lauded. A large crowd had
collected on the landing, and his honor was
received very cordially. The following ad
dress wai presented to his honor on tho part
of the Inhabitants by the Rev. J. B. Good,
who was accompanied by Dr. Rrouse, Messrs'
Oppenheimer, Sutton and Gladwin, as a deputation from the inhabitants:
A DDK less
To thc Hon. Arthur N. Birch, Administrator
of the Government of British Columbia :
Sir,—We, the undersigned inhabitants of
Yule, beg to tender to your honor n hearty
welcome on this your lirst official visit as representative of Her Miij-sty the Quoen to our
town.    We trust that, in future, we shall have
RKN.Y.
Gkntlemkn,--I thank you sincerely for the
kind manner in which you have welcomed me
to your town, It is always a matter of regret
to me that thc preat distances to be traveled

I
u reaching the principal towns of this colony,
irevent  the   Executive  from   meeting   the
majority of the inhabitants more frequently,
leading, as you rightly observe it would, to ur
interchange of mutual Idi as and wishes alike
conducive to the welfare and proiperity of
tne colony.
I join with you in the pride and satisfaction
with which you direct attention to the peace
and security prevailing throughout this district, and, indeed, throughout this colony.
You are ri/iht in your estimation of my desire, ut all limes, to have matters of local or
general importance brought to my notice.
1 am aware that a Court House is much required in this town. It is through no forget-
iillness that this building has been so long
delayed. The financial circumstances of the
colony have alone been the cause. I trust,
rery shortly, to be in a position to authorize
ihis necessary expenditure.
The fencing of the Cemetery, and the improvements to your main siret't are nutter-;
j which should not, in my opinion, be any
longer under the supervision of the Government.
I am very anxious to see municipal institu-
tioiii commence in our more thriving towns,
and hope that Yule will take the lead in up-
the pleasure of seeing you here more frequent-j plying lor a municipal charter, under the pro
virions of the Ordinance No. 11, of 1865,
claiming, as it does, the foremost place in
our iulund towns. Such institutions are
always a valuable assistance to the Government, and would receive every support.
The improvement to the navigation of the
Eraser, between Hope and Yale, shall claim
the attention it deserves. I will immediately
authorize an estimate to be made of the ex-
ly than formerly, believing that intercourse
between the head of the Executive and the
people, leading, as it docs, to an interchange
of mutual ideas and wishes, is conducive to
the welfare and prosperity of the country,
objects which must, nnd we believe do, claim
the anxious solicitude and care of the Government.
It is with pride and satisfaction that wc
direct your honor's attention to the fact of
the absence of crime in this distiict, which is
a c'leering evidence of the peace and security
that prevails, and we are al»o pleased lo inform
you that in your honor's progress through
other parti of the colony you will liml tin-
like happy 6tate of the public peace existing
tb:U we claim for this district.
Feeling that it is your honor's derire, as
well as tbe main object of your visit, to have
any  diallers of local or general  importance
brought to your notice, and not with any de- 	
sire to unnecessarily intrude upon you, we re-1cordial reception.

Tnn Old Guard ok Napolkon.—-After the,
treaty of peace  of Tilsit the most friendly j
intercourse  existed  between  Napoleon andj
the Emperor of Russia, and they were  often j
seen riding or walking together without an!
escort.   On one occasion as the  two Empe-i
icrs were leaving  the palace arm in  arm,
Alexander's attention  was arrested by  the
appearance of a granadier of the Old Guard
who stood sentry at the gate.   This war-worn
veteran had his face literally divided by a scar
of a saber-cut extending from above the  left
eye brow  to  the right  side   of the   chin.
Noticing Alexander's look of surprise,   Napoleon remarked: "What do you t'nink, brother,
of soldiers who survive such wounds?" "And
you, brother," replied thc Russian Emperor,
"ivhatdoyou think of the soldiers who inflicted
those wounds?" Before Napoleon could find a
suitable answer to this home thrust,  the  old
soldier, who stood at "present arras" as a
statue, growled audibly from under his moustache, and without moving a muscle, "they
are dead, those."    "Ah ! brother," said Alexander, laughing, "here again the victory is
yours!"   " It is," replied Napoleon, " because
hsre again my Old Guard stood by me."

Why One should not swear.—An article
in the Pittsburgh Preacher, gives seven good
reasons why a man should not swear: 1. Itis
mean. A man of high moral standing would
almost as soon steal a sheep as swear. 2. It
is vulgar—altogether too low for a decent man.
8. It is cowardly—implying a fear either of
not being believed or obeyed. 4. It is un-
gentlemany. A gentleman, according to
Webster, is a genteel man—well bred, refined.
Such a one will no more swear than go into
the street to throw mud with a loafer. 5. It
is indecent—offensive to delicacy, and extremely unfit for human ears. 6. It is foolish. I
